Client Comments

Mr Mathieson

I thought I would drop you a quick e-mail to thank you for producing me the best suit I have ever owned. As discussed, I have owned many suits including designer off the peg and 2 "so called" bespoke suits.

The made to measure suit you produced for me, along with made to measure shirt and tie from stock is nothing short of stunning. I have never felt more comfortable in a suit that also felt cut so close.

Having only worn it once for a work conference I have already received two positive comments on the suit. I'm not the most "suit type" person and generally leave a conference etc and change into my jeans for the journey home. To be honest, I didn't want to take it off. I daren't think about how good your bespoke suits are !

You were a true gent and I was made to feel totally valued, despite only ordering a single MTM. I can honestly say I cannot ever see myself going anywhere else for tailoring. With your MTM starting at circa £850, in my humble opinion, anyone that does pay £600 or £700 for a designer off the peg really wants to get a brain scan just to be on the safe side.


Have received my jacket this morning. It is absolutely beautiful and a perfect fit. It travelled well and no creases at all. All the details are wonderful. Thank you so much. I will have to think about having another one made! Best wishes to you all.


Dear Geoff and Family, A wee note of thanks for yet again providing me with a suit that is first class. It is true what some people say, "A trip to your tailor can make you feel and look a whole lot better.

The ambience of your establishment and the caring friendliness of you and your family make it an experience to remember.

Guy Hale – First used in 2009

"I first discovered Geoff on the net four years ago, having never had a bespoke suit made before I was not sure what to expect. What I found was a fantastic family business run by a wonderfully skilled, funny and helpful crew. The cutting is Savile Rows finest quality but you can get this service in Woburn! 14 suits, 3 Jackets, 18 ties and 46 shirts later I think you could say I was a satisfied customer. If you have never ventured into the world of bespoke tailoring before this is the firm to do it with. If you ask nicely Geoff and the boys will even make you a cuppa. Laura Souster also does some fab ladies jackets and blouses of which my wife has 3. Thank god they don't do handbags!"

One of the essential ingredients for a performer of my type is to look good on stage. With Souster & Hicks as my tailor I can always be assured of that. I can safely say that I have never felt so good in a suit.

Mr Fetcher - Brighton July 2017

Dear Geoff The point of writing is to say I did not express the necessary appreciation for three first rate garments. I would venture they are your best yet, so far as this customer is concerned. Not that the previous work was not fine in itself, but when a craftsman does something very special, a round of applause is called for. Claire took the attached picture with her mobile. When my naturally uneven stature and those prominent stripes are made to go together that well, it says it all.

Matthew Penning - First used in 2015

Great service as always yesterday - thank you for all your assistance, highly recommend.

Darren Applewhite _ First used in 2014

Can't go wrong with this family run business. They catered to all my needs to make my wedding day perfect. Excellent service, exquisitely made garments. Thank you.

Dave Newbury – First used in 2010

"I have had a number of suits, casual, business, and formal, made by Geoff over the last couple of years. He has always provided the best styling advice, to steer me away from my more wild ideas, and produced absolutely stunning attire. I would recommend Geoff to create the perfect bespoke suit for any occasion.

Matthew Bray – First used in 2009

"Geoff is a rare person - creative, talented and always produces above and beyond expectation, on time and at amazing value. I cannot stress how impressive Geoff's work is. It is also important to recognise the whole family involvement with Laura, Scott and Wes - if you want to feel like a million dollars put on one of Souster and Hicks' creations."

Kevin Wright - First used in 2011

Just wanted to say thank you and Wow !! – What a beautiful Jacket you have made for me – I kid you not the feedback and attention I got Saturday night was incredible, You have done yourself, Souster and Hicks and myself proud. I had strangers asking me about where I got it from, Male and more importantly Female – It was a Magnet !!!!! Once again well done and thank you.

John Bridge OBE - Huntingdon

Thank you for your time and patience on Saturday and we are in awe of your expertise. Delighted with the way all is progressing and looking forward very much to seeing the final result.

Phil Melville – First used in 2010

"I went to Geoff to see if I could recapture the pleasure of a handmade suit which was the norm when I was growing up in Liverpool in the 60's. Geoff was professional personified and helped me back into the 21st century with a truly superb lightweight wool suit. He kept my quirky cuffs and added his signature lapels to create a suit which draws compliments every time I wear it ! What a memorable experience from start to finish. From a very grateful Philip Melville !"

John Bullivant – First used in 1987

"Great tailoring. Every shirt. Every suit. Every tie. Every year."

Phil McDuell – First used in 2009

"Geoff and his family are top drawer tailors. Always a pleasure to be in their company and the suits are fantastic. I would recommend to anyone."

Paul D Clark – First used in 1985

"Geoff is the all time professional, he understands his customer, he spends time with them in the production of Quality clothes designed for the individual.

Simon Freakley – First used in 2011

"Geoff has created several bespoke suits, shirts and casual jackets for me over the past year or so. I have been absolutely delighted with the quality of the garments and the friendly and professional service that Geoff always provides. I would highly recommend Geoff, he is a pleasure to do business with and a first class tailor."

Julian Daniel – First used in 2000

"I always dreamed of having a made-to-measure suit. About 12 years ago, Geoff fulfilled that dream and I have been going to him ever since. Now I have a wardrobe full of bespoke tailored suits, jackets and shirts. When I am out in his clothes I always get favourable comments. About 8 years ago I mentioned I saw a suit in Milan with a fancy lining and Geoff took that idea and the rest, as they say, is history. He has so many tricks up his sleeve now in terms of making me look presentable but with a twist, his suits are far superior to any I see about London."

Mark Selby – First used in 2001

"Geoff and the whole Souster family offer superb service and wonderful suits. You cant appreciate a well-made bespoke suit until you have had one of Geoff's. Alongside that, the experience is great fun too. The only downside is the compulsion to go back again and again and get more...."

Anthony Haines - First used in 2015

"The most incredible bespoke tailors around.. I want to thank both Scott and Geoff for putting together my amazing wedding suit, absolute legends!! I will be coming back.

Michelle Rockley — First used in 2015

Just picked up my dad's beautiful suit for our wedding in two weeks, cannot thank these guys enough. Stunning suit, great service, lovely family run business.

Mark Frost – First used in 1992

"If you want a suit, go to Burton, if you're after a piece of creative genius then go and pay Geoff a visit. Geoff has been making my suits for many years, he runs a true family business and you're guaranteed first class results every time. If you want to turn heads with a crisp look, a splash of colour or just something different then Sousters is the place to be. Plan ahead, these things can't be rushed, give it a go, it's not as expensive as you might think!"

Neil Purcell – First Used in Feb 2012

I was introduced to Scott through a friend of mine and quite honestly I cannot recommend him highly enough. The quality of the tailoring and the ideas for the suits and shirts Scott has designed and made for me have been nothing short of superb. Unfortunately for me I now have to change my entire wardrobe as nothing quite hits the mark in comparison anymore. One warning I would give is that once you have one made you will be back ordering more. Customer service and attention to detail is spot on and I cannot recommend anyone better in the trade."

Simon Pickering – First used in Feb 2012

Since entering the Souster & Hicks shop in Woburn and meeting Scott and the rest of the family, and picking up my first bespoke jacket and waistcoat, I have got to say there will be no looking back! Since then I have been once a month and treated myself to a number of bespoke shirts and jackets and all I can say to anyone is try it...make the effort to pop in and meet Scott you will enjoy the experience and new threads!!!"

Adrian Greaves – First used in 1997

"Simply the best! From the minute you step through the door at Sousters & Hicks to the moment you leave with your prized bespoke possessions. I couldn't ask for anything better in terms of quality of service and finished product. I will always use this very friendly and family orientated run business and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Sousters & Hicks to the whole world! 10/10"

Kriss Akabusi MBE – First used in 2008

"I recommend Scott and his family business Souster & Hicks for the quality of work they have turned out for me year on year. Highly inventive, great attention to detail, very collaborative when it comes to generating ideas but assertive when some of my wacky ideas might make me look a clown, I trust their judgment and then ability to turn out world class bespoke items that make me look good in unique apparel suitable for the occasion they are targeted at, business, dinners or leisure. Don't take my word for it though try them for yourself.

Colin Hill – First used in 2010

"Scott along with Geoff, Laura & Wes has the most wonderful family business that provides a fantastic "true fully bespoke" tailoring service. Their traditional methods with some contemporary touches all add to the unique experience at their beautiful premises."

Dave Welch – First used in 2005

"I have always found Scott to provide an excellent level of 'personal' service where his advice, guidance & ideas are really valued. The quality of my suits are excellent and I would highly recommend Scott to all."

Neil Ackroyd – First used in 2006

"Scott has always looked after me very well and kept me looking tip top for business meetings. My bespoke jackets always raise positive comments."

Damian Derrick – First used in 2004

"Scott made the suits for my wedding day which were just first class. The service from beginning to end was both professional and personable. He totally changed my view on bespoke tailoring - so much so that I have not bought a suit from anywhere else since."

Mark Collender – First used in 2006

Scott is a great bespoke tailor, he listens to what I want and gives me great advice and great service."

Mohammed S Paracha (Dubai) – First used in 2006

"I have several suits that have been made by Geoff. He makes excellent suits to a very high standard and is great at making suggestions. I have several business suits, dinner jackets and now some casual items. Always on time and even though I am now based in Dubai, he seems to be able to send me fabric samples so I can choose my next suit even though I am no longer in the UK."

Charles Howson – First used in 2010

"I can't recommend Geoff highly enough. He is the ultimate professional and I have never been disappointed. Everything he has made for me has been absolutely first rate and I am totally satisfied with the service he has provided at all times. Not only is Geoff a first rate tailor, he is incredibly personable whilst remaining professional."

Jackie & Becki

"Our wedding day was absolutely amazing, the best day ever! Our suits looked absolutely fantastic and we got so many lovely comments about them.

Thank you again for making us look a million dollars on our special day."
